  • Dragoon IconDRG
    Cross Hotbar IconXHB
    P.V.E. IconPVE

    Thought process

    • GCDs on face buttons so movement is easier while rolling gcd
    • OGCDs put roughly in order of pressing (e.g. lance charge ->Litany -> clockwise following gcd order)
    • WXHB and Expanded XHB are shared on Hotbar 2 so I can see the Expanded because double tapping is annoying and 32 slots is plenty for most jobs
    • Macro is placeholder for Pot
    • Hotbar 3 is for easy switching to during 3+ encounters and so they don't waste space, leaving room to add reminder macros or move anti kb to a face button
      • There are 3 free buttons (4 if you remove leg sweep) if you want to add aoe anyway
    • Sprint as a macro on the left thumbstick (L3) so you can press it while moving
  • Reaper IconRPR
    Cross Hotbar IconXHB
    P.V.E. IconPVE
    • WXHB and Extended XHB shared on HB 2 for visible Cds
    • AOE rotation separated on HB 3 to replace HB 1 when needed
    • standard GCDs on face buttons for movement and OGCDs near GCDs close in the rotation/bursts
  • Summoner IconSMN
    Cross Hotbar IconXHB
    P.V.E. IconPVE

    Thought Process

    • single target on the right
    • role actions in the same place as red mage build
    • gcds on face buttons for movement because smn doesnt cast
    • WXHB and Expanded XHB shared on hotbar 2 so cooldowns visible and dont have to use double tap
    • AOE duplicated on XHB 3 because I expected to have to move it from XHB when smn got more abilities :/
      • if you need room just keep whatever is comfier
    • Legos in order for titan first opener
    • Also, yeah that is just physick. Honestly probably just going to put lux solaris there
  • Red Mage IconRDM
    Cross Hotbar IconXHB
    P.V.E. IconPVE

    Thought Process

    • melee and spells separated
    • Tried to place ogcds near their rotation/burst gcds (e.g. embolden near melee combo, pot near spells for opener, etc)
    • Fleche and C6 duplicated to make drifting harder
    • spell relevant actions near spells (e.g. lucid, instants)
    • macro icon is placeholder for pots
    • Expanded XHB on HB 2 shared with WXHB to see cooldowns, use whichever you feel comfortable using. I just think double tapping is annoying :)

More Viper layouts

  • Viper IconVPR
    Hotbar IconHB
    P.V.E. IconPVE

    Easily distinguish between your 'left' and 'right' dual blade combos and your twinblade combos, even making our reawaken phase as simple as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Keybinds: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Q, E, R, T, F, M4, M5 (+ Shift / Ctrl for Hotbars 2/3)

  • Viper IconVPR
    Cross Hotbar IconXHB
    P.V.E. IconPVE

    All important combo GCDs and oGCDs are on the face buttons for max mobility while weaving/doing positionals

    I tend to put AOEs on the D-pad since they aren’t as important but Viper actually has more AOE GCDs than most jobs, so Pit of Dread (aoe Twinblade starter) was able to get a spot on the R2 + Square since there was real estate.

    Hotbar 3 (L2>R2 and R2>L2) are mirrored so you can just mash the other trigger down after hitting a combo GCD and always have the same oGCDs (other jobs have enough space for this too, not just viper).

    Twinfang and Twinblood line up with the buttons that Hunter’s and Swiftskin’s coil are on which makes it easy to just press that button twice to start the oGCD combo chain.

    Role actions/sprint/LB are just where I usually put them, feel free to move those around.

    P.V.E. IconPVE

    The fact i need to duplicate three skills... Square Enix didn't love me.

    Since 2016, I use crossbar using a specific layout I mimic on each job (minus healer) Left : Support skills Right: Mono target Double right : AOE skills Double left : Big CD + distance skill for Melee dps

    Normally, i set the dash in the double right but i can't for this layout.

  • Viper IconVPR
    Cross Hotbar IconXHB
    P.V.E. IconPVE

    Taking a first go at a layout. Working to minimize swaps between bars needed to perform the opening and filler rotation.

    Single target on bar 2, AOE on bar 3.

    Have dreadwinder on bar 1 to monitor cooldown.
